Yesterday was a big day - the first day of my new class at art school. The class is paper-cutting and collage and already I love it! I had the normal first-day jitters, plus I'm so busy that it seemed ridiculous to go to class, but I did and I'm delighted. It's a small class and the teacher is lovely. I'm starting to think that I shold be doing one of these classes all the time!
I took a mini-break from Spring into Horror to finish off reading 2001: A Space Odyssey, which was really great because I really wanted to finish it and I did! It was really wild to read it, especially because the film scared me so much. Now I understand the story a lot better (shocker!), and look forward to trying to watch the film again. I know some of it will still freak me out, but I'm willing to risk it!
Rough day. Bad pain day in my back which I usually relieve by moving but I just couldn't go out for a walk today so I took pain meds and spent most of the day in bed. I did do some research on how to make pickles. Did you know that "real" kosher pickles don't use vinegar? Although it is hotly debated. OMG, just let me feel a little bit better tomorrow please. I want pickles now!
